In a year like no other, the team at Greenstone Entertainment are bringing life back into the live entertainment industry in the summer of 2021.  After a record sell-out tour in 2020 attracting over 50,000 fans, we’re announcing a line-up of five fantastic acts for next year’s Summer Concert Tour, with a trans-Tasman vibe to the shows.

There’s been huge interest in next year’s tour, with people wanting to know when the lineup would be announced, and when tickets would go on sale.  An initial line-up had been confirmed as far back as March but then the world changed for everyone.  It's been a waiting game to see big events back on the calendar and we’re excited to be amongst the first in the world to deliver back to our fans the vibrancy that live events can bring.

Next year will see five incredible acts taking to the stage at the Gibbston Valley Winery Summer Concert, Taupo Summer Concert and Whitianga Summer Concert in January, and will feature GIN WIGMORETHE ANGELSDRAGONPSEUDO ECHO and MI-SEX.

Appreciating how lucky we are in the world to be able to plan to get together again, the artists for next year’s three show tour have graciously agreed to do what it takes for fans to get out there and again enjoy the musical talents and experience that comes from a live outdoor festival.

Greenstone Entertainment is pleased to have been given approval for our international acts to enter New Zealand by Immigration New Zealand.  This gives peace of mind to concert fans that the artists will be able to come to New Zealand to perform.

With 11 years of history, Greenstone Entertainment CEO, Amanda Calvert says of today’s announcement: “After what’s been a turbulent year, Greenstone Entertainment and our artists are excited about the opportunity to deliver what will be the best outdoor live music festival event in the summer of 2021.  Nothing beats a world-class live music experience for everyone’s health and wellbeing.

“Staying true to everything we know and love about the Summer Concert Tour, we’ll be bringing some of the best of classic rock to our stunning New Zealand summer holiday locations of Queenstown, Taupo and Whitianga in January 2021.  It’s also our way of supporting our hometowns and local communities. We’re very appreciative of everything they give to the event and are proud that the Summer Concert Tour generates millions of dollars of economic benefit to the regions each year.”

Amanda continues “We know it’s been tough for many out there this year, so we’ll continue to offer great value for money for a full day of live music entertainment with local’s tickets only $115 and other tickets starting from $125 through our website.  This works out to be around only $25 per act. This is a great way to get family and friends together again and we can’t wait to see thousands of happy, smiling faces enjoying themselves at one of the shows.”

GIN WIGMORE is well known for her raspy and unique voice, and will have her kiwi fans on their feet to some of her unmistakable tunes such as Black SheepOh MyHey Ho and I Do.  These are just a few of the songs from albums like Holy Smoke, Blood to Bone and Gravel & Wine, all of which have peaked at No 1 on the NZ Album charts and helped place Holy Smoke in the Top 50 Best of All Time Albums in New Zealand.

THE ANGELS lay claim to be being one of Australia’s longest lasting bands, dating as far back as 1976 when they first released Am I Ever Gonna See You Face Again.  Their relationship with the audience is everything to them, and their standard of live music is sure to have every show rocking when they perform the likes of Take A Long LineWe Gotta Get Out Of This Place and No Secrets.

DRAGON are the epitome of New Zealand rock as we know it. The tens of thousands of fans who come to one of the shows will get to sing their lungs out to the songs we all know and love like April Sun In CubaAre You Old Enough and Young Years to name but a few. 

PSEUDO ECHO are one of Australia’s leading recording and touring acts, and will be sure to please with their stylized look and electro sound including hit singles Funky Town, which reached No. 1 on the NZ Singles Charts in 1987, as well as Beat For You and Don’t Go.

MI-SEX have been loved by kiwis since the late 70’s with their new wave, pub band style. Known for their dynamic live shows, hits such as Computer GamesPeopleBlue Day and But You Don’t Care are sure to make for a memorable day.
